ndergraduate 
mmencement 



Kean President Dr. Dawood Farahi emphasized the significance of pride, potential, 
progress and passion as elements of success to more than 2,500 graduates during 
the undergraduate commencement ceremony at the PNC Bank Arts Center on May 
13. 

Hill Harper, an accomplished author, award-winning actor and activist, then offered 
the largest graduating class in the university's history, and their more than 20,000 
guests, practical advice about fearlessness and setting goals. 

"Fear is false evidence appearing real," said Harper, best known for his role in the 
hit CBS drama CSI: New York. "Failure is a measure of perception. So, what choices 
would you make if you knew you couldn't fail?" 

After Harper's address, talented student performers and the Kean Cougar mascot 
entertained the audience with an energetic rendition of the Black Eyed Pea's 
popular hit single, / Gotta Feeling. 

Pride and excitement continued as Robin K. Bagley, valedictorian of the class of 
2010, shared a few words of advice with her fellow graduates. 

"I believe that the only way to live life is to live it to the fullest," she said. "So I 
hope, from this day forth, we as a class can unite behind the idea of giving all we can 
to everything we do. In doing so, I know we will all succeed."

Enhance Your Undergraduate Degree 
at the Nathan Weiss Graduate College 

decision whether or not to pursue graduate school is upon you, look no further than Kean 
liversity. The Nathan Weiss Graduate College (NWGC) provides varied degree and certification 
programs, as well as non-credit courses and community initiatives; not to mention outstanding faculty 
and staff. With 26 master degree programs and 45 program options, NWGC is sure to have a graduate 
program that suits your professional and educational needs. 

In addition to NWGC's master's degrees and program options, the graduate college also proudly offers 
two doctoral degrees and two professional diploma programs. The doctoral degrees include a Doctor of 
Psychology (Psy.D.), which is a combined program in school and clinical psychology, and a Doctor of 
Education (Ed.D.) with a concentration in urban education. The professional diploma programs include 
marriage and family therapy and school psychology. Nathan Weiss's professional diploma for school 
psychology is also one of only two in the state of New Jersey that is nationally accredited. 

Students are attracted to Kean's graduate programs for several reasons, including our small class size, 
a talented faculty, a close student-professor relationship, and the reasonable cost of a graduate 
education. The best reason, however, is that a graduate degree from Kean emphasizes an education 
that you can put to work in your chosen career. 

Kean undergraduate alum should also be aware of the benefits that one may have with the familiarity 
from same-school retention. It is strategic to kick off graduate school with a university with which you 
already have linked networks and resources because that connection becomes stronger at the graduate 
level. 

Students looking to advance their undergraduate degree and seek a graduate college that is right for 
them should look to the Nathan Weiss Graduate College. For more information or to request an 
application, please call 908-737-GRAD (4723), visit www.kean.edu or send your request via postal mar 
to:
